Book 9 – My Uncle Napoleon by Iraq Pezeshkzad

This one’s a fail, I’m afraid, I only made it to the end of Chapter 2.

Things I didn’t like:

  • The adult world described through a juvenile narrator (just not my taste),
  • I don’t think the dialogue, particularly the idiomatic phrases, came across very well in translation,
  • The servant (who I think is a key character throughout the novel was REALLY annoying).
